The new signings have adapted very well to the Barcelona system, which is unique, which is different, and which we will defend above anything else,” Joan Laporta has told Diario Sport.
“Although sometimes there is the temptation or the debate as to whether it should evolve. We are in favour of maintaining this model because it makes us unique. If we changed to a more physical model we would be just another team.
“That is why the immediate performance of Robert Lewandowski or Jules Kounde, for example, is remarkable.”
Barca has received some criticism this season after their below-par performances on the European stage, again failing to qualify for the Champions League knockout stages.
In La Liga, however, Barca’s model seems to work just fine, as the Catalans continue first in the league.
